Sunday Sandy Snapshot #18

There are so many beautiful patterns in the sand, and none more so than where 3 completely different colours of sand lie.  It’s not as 3 dimensional as you think!  The white sand comprises very small grains and is very soft, whereas the red sand has course grains and often lies on the top of dunes;  if you dig there won’t be much of it below the surface.

  1. I will see patterns similar to this along Michigan except instead of red sand there will usually be darker organic material. I don’t see it that often though. We also have a lot of Iron Filings that wash up and create darker bands along our shoreline..nothing this intricate though. Excellent capture.
